#DCmoments Food Guide - Rome
Here our content creator has put together his favourite foodie spots in the Eternal City. This is your invitation to discover Rome doing what Rome does best – simple, authentic, wonderful food.
Here ‘la dolce vita’ could simply mean a balmy evening, a glass of Italian red and a generous slice of Margherita pizza.
Salumeria Roscioli was opened in 2005 by the Roscioli family, famous for their bakery Antico Forno Roscioli (also well worth a visit). This is a very popular restaurant in the centre of town, so make sure you book several days ahead for lunch and dinner. Once there, enjoy their spectacular selection of cured meats, cheeses and local pasta specials.
Ideal for: Experimental, making an impression, dinner
Madre is a sprawling garden terrace in the middle of Rome specialising in Italian and South American dishes such as pizza, ceviche and tacos. A fun place to relax with friends or enjoy a summer’s evening.
Ideal for: Good nightlife, friends
Situated off the beaten track in San Giovanni you’ll find Santo Palato, a new trattoria to the area, serving Italian classics with a modern twist. It’s the perfect spot for a local date, and chef Sarah’s take on the carbonara alone is worth the trip.
